CATH Clusters

Superfamily D-amino Acid Aminotransferase, subunit A, domain 2
Functional Family D-alanine aminotransferase

Enzyme Information
D-amino-acid transaminase.
based on mapping to UniProt P19938
D-alanine + 2-oxoglutarate = pyruvate + D-glutamate.
-!- The enzyme from thermophilic Bacillus species acts on many D-amino acids with D-alanine and D-2-aminobutyrate as the best amino donors. -!- It can similarly use any of several 2-oxo acids as amino acceptor, with 2-oxoglutarate and 2-oxobutyrate among the best. -!- The enzyme from some other sources has a broader specificity. -!- Formerly EC
